Abstract: An inheritance is what we leave behind when we go, what is derived or acquired from the experiences or the people we encounter during a lifetime. From 2006-2008, I lived one life as a graduate fiction student at the University of North Carolina-Greensboro. This collection, Inheritance and Other Stories, amasses my literary experiences (and experiments) in the writing workshops at UNC-G, what I'm taking with me for future stories and what I'm leaving behind for the program. As a collection, these stories were written to restore and reaffirm the lives of the characters, whether they survive or not. Each explores the themes of solitude and death (the ultimate solitude) in a series of stories that are sometimes of this world, and sometimes not.
